Finland container terminals Go live with Navis N4 in cloud

Navis, a part of Cargotec Corporation and provider of operational technologies and services, has announced that two Finland-based container terminals–Steveco Vuosaari (Helsinki) and Steveco Mussalo (Kotka)–have become the first ports to go live with N4 in a hosted private cloud environment, the company said.

Steveco is one of Finland´s port operators and a full logistics provider offering large scale warehousing and stuffing services, sea and land freight, as well as 3PL services. With container terminals in both Kotka, near the Russian boarder, and in the capital city of Helsinki serving domestic import and exports, Steveco´s Vuosaari and Mussalo ports move a combined 750,000 TEUs annually.

As part of the implementation, all Navis servers, including N4, XPS, ECN4 and the backend database are hosted in a private cloud data center managed and maintained by a Nordic software and services company Tieto, headquartered in Finland.

Steveco is the first terminal within Navis´ extensive customer portfolio to run N4 in a cloud environment. With a reliable cloud solution provider and strong network connectivity to the data center from the terminal, Steveco has not experienced any performance or reliability issues following its go-lives several weeks ago.
